What is a proper noun? And what is a common noun?

Answered by svorhis

A proper noun is something that would need capitalization and is specific such as Bob or Texas. A common noun is the opposite, like boy or bicycle.

PROPER NOUN- These name specific people, places, things, or ideas.:Britney, Paris, Rover, Nike.Since these nouns are naming specific things, they begin with a capital letter.Sometimes, they contain two or more important words.Britney Spears, Central Park Zoo, Pacific Ocean.If this is the case, both important words are capitalized, and the whole thing is still considered to be one proper noun even though it's made up of more than one word.COMMON NOUN - They name people, places, things or ideas that are not specific:woman, city, dog, shoe
